Executive Perspectives Briefs :: David Newman

David Newman talks about coaching c-suite leaders and clearing up the misconception that coaching comes from a place of weakness, but instead it comes from a place of strength. Big companies see the advantage of coaching because, “Coaching isn’t about fixing you. It’s about improving your game continuously.” He also highlights the three things you need to look for in a good coach: testimonials, external credibility, and don’t be the first to take a bet on someone. Newman also stresses the need to focus on the output — if the results can be quantified in some way, that’s what people want to know about.
